Asparagus Purple Passion
For you connoisseurs, enjoy delicious fresh vegetables from your own garden with Purple Passion Asparagus. A superior selection Purple Passion brings a refined sweet flavor due to it having 20% more sugar than most varieties. When cooked its flavor becomes mildly nutty. In April and May, a heavy yield of attractive smoky purple spears is produced. They can be harvested for about eight weeks. Another top quality: Its purple spears are not stringy like typical asparagus and the whole spear can be cooked without wasting the end.
Plants are male or female. Males do not produce flowers and fruit and typically produce better crop yields. Plants mature to large towering ferns in the summer and then die off after frost and are dormant during the winter. Female plants produce red berries in late summer. Long-lived perennial plants.
Plant in full sun in soil that has been amended with compost or other organic matter.
Pack of 8 one year old plants.
